Think of it as "The Bad News Bears" set to Klezmer music. Somewhat like the 1976 comedy film about the national pastime, which starred Walter Matthau as Coach Morris Buttermaker, "The Yankles" is about a washed-up ex-professional ballplayer who makes a comeback of sorts on the baseball diamond. If you watch the trailer to this 2009 independent film made by two brothers from the Huntington Beach area, you might see shades of Buttermaker in Coach Charlie Jones. What's different about this protagonist is that the hopeless players on his team are deeply religious grown-ups with side curls, not bleached-blond Little Leaguers from Southern California who cuss and get into dust-ups.

Ashley MacDonald was a talented teenager who liked heavy metal music, favored black clothes, and had a lot of friends and a great sense of humor, family and friends said Wednesday at a funeral service for the 18-year-old Huntington Beach woman. MacDonald's mother Lisa Marie Guy bent down to kiss her one last time before taking her seat. It was half-way through the service while listening to Coldplay's song "Yellow" that Guy broke down, shaking her head several times. About 75 people attended the somber ceremony for Ashley Anne MacDonald at Dilday Brothers Funeral Directors on Beach Boulevard.

Andrew Wainer It was a quiet Friday night. Deep green lawns, well-lighted streets and tidy homes added to the sense of normalcy on Keelson Street in the Oak View community. It seemed unlikely turf for Huntington Beach's largest and oldest street gang. Slowly cruising through the neighborhood in an unmarked Chevrolet, Gary Faust and Mark Garcia, Huntington Beach Police Gang Unit detectives, encountered little gang activity during their nighttime patrol of the community that hardly covers more than half of a square mile.

Rachael Mullenix sobbed violently Thursday as a jury found her guilty of helping arrange the brutal fatal stabbing of her mother whose body was found dumped in Newport Harbor. Mullenix’s first question after hearing the verdict was “How could this be?” followed by “How is my family?” her attorney David Cohn said. Mullenix was accused of getting former boyfriend Ian Allen to help her murder her mother, Barbara Mullenix, in her Huntington Beach condo in 2006.

I’m sitting here trying to make sense and write this column about what I witnessed last week — the two services I attended for Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, drummer (who wrote and sang) for the Huntington Beach-based band Avenged Sevenfold. If you saw the column I wrote a few months back about Joe and Barbara Sullivan, Jimmy’s parents, you’ll remember that this tight-knit family knew early that the little boy banging on toys in the tub was destined for something percussive — but as the member of a spectacularly popular band?

On the back window of a vehicle parked on a well-kept street in a neighborhood near Central Library, there is a sticker for the band Avenged Sevenfold. While you’d be right in assuming that the vehicle belongs to a big fan, which fan might surprise you. It’s not one of the millions of high school or college kids who have helped make this innovative, intense metal band one of the hottest in the world right now. Rather, the vehicle belongs to Joe Sullivan, the drummer’s dad. Joe and Barbara Sullivan, who have lived in the same comfortable Huntington Beach house since 1977, may not look like rock ’n’ roll parents.

Like many teenage girls, Huntington Beach resident Rachael Mullenix told her mother she hated her and didn’t want to live with her anymore, according to prosecutors. But then, prosecutors said, Mullenix and her 21-year-old boyfriend made sure of it — with several knives. The prosecution made opening arguments and called a few witnesses Wednesday in the murder and conspiracy trial of Mullenix, who turned away as Deputy Dist. Atty. Sonia Balleste showed jurors her mother a picture of Barbara Mullenix’s slashed body as it appeared when it washed up at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club on Sept.

If the first day of the Rachael Mullenix murder trial was full of allegations against the defendant, the second day’s accusations were against her slain mother. The trial of Mullenix on charges of conspiring with her boyfriend in 2006 to murder her mother, Barbara Mullenix, continued Thursday with testimony from Bruce Mullenix, Rachael’s father. Bruce Mullenix, who was divorced from Barbara but let them both live in his Huntington Beach condo, told jurors his slain ex-wife made threats and acted abusive when she’d had too much to drink.

The murder and conspiracy trial of Rachael Mullenix nearly flew off the rails Monday afternoon, before the judge rejected a request for a mistrial by the defense and allowed the case to continue. It all began as prosecutor Sonia Balleste cross-examined defense witness Veronica Thomas, a psychologist hired to evaluate Mullenix. In the PowerPoint presentation she used to illustrate her questions about the defendant’s psychology, Balleste included an image of a poem written by Mullenix, titled “Female Player.

“People ask me, ‘Do you care if people buy one of your paintings because you’re Jan Brady?’ I say, ‘No, their money is still the same!’” And with a girlish laugh, the attractive artist reveals, for a moment at least, a notable part of her past. But, refreshingly, she’ll never dwell on it. Recently in this column, you read about Mary McDonough, who played Erin on “The Waltons” and lives locally and teaches acting to local youngsters (while still working in Hollywood)

Jill Deetjen finished the Boston Marathon on Monday in a time of 4 hours, 54 minutes and 27 seconds. The time is a personal-best. It’s also not really the point. “I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m a slow runner,” she said, laughing, Friday before the race. “I’m like a jogger.” Deetjen, a Huntington Beach resident, met her goal of less than five hours. But the cool part for Deetjen was that she was there in the first place.
